According to the Bosque County Sheriff's Office, Adam Scott, 53, said he used a 9 mm handgun to shoot Derek Scott, 25, in the stomach during an altercation at a home around 9 p.m. in the county's Lakeside Village area.

Deputies took Adam into custody at the scene and transported Derek to Hillcrest Hospital in Waco, where he was said to be in stable condition.
